Can a guy get more obtuse?
President Obama is feeling the wrath of social media after making an incendiary and highly politicized remark about the WDBJ murders shortly after the televised shootings that left reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward dead, and another woman injured.
CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller posted what Obama had said during an interview on Wednesday. According to the president, gun-related deaths in the U.S. “dwarfs any deaths that happen through terrorism.”
In interview with @6abc, Pres Obama said deaths in the US from gun-related incidents “dwarfs any deaths that happen through terrorism.”

The White House has been mum about the fact that the murders were racially motivated as described in the killer’s manifesto.
And with the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks around the corner, social media users took Obama to task for his statement, and reminded him what Americans are up against.

Obama didn’t hesitate to address the South Carolina murders committed by psycho-killer Dylann Roof as hate crimes motivated by racism. And some social media users are wondering why it’s different now:
@DineshDSouza why do we in America treat crimes involving the Muslim religion or the black race different. Are they scared to treat evyone =

@DineshDSouza @usa_truth The shooter was not only black but homosexual which gives him even more of a reason to avoid talking about it.

The WDBJ murders tells us one thing and one thing only. There is now a race war against whites and cops. It started from the top with Obama.

Tweeters also reminded Obama of the massive gun violence in his hometown of Chicago — a city with some of the strictest gun laws in the country.
@markknoller @6abc …. In Chicago?

.@markknoller Can he explain why tragic incidents like this are dwarfed by the daily wanton gun killings taking place in failed lib cities?
— Ree Fungorio (@ReeFungorio) August 27, 2015
@markknoller @6abc Really, now? Does he spew this in inner-city neighborhoods where sounds of gunshots is commonplace & murder is the norm?
— Monique (@chickiepotpie) August 26, 2015
@markknoller @gopfashionista @6abc Obama needs to start with the gun free zone in Chicago.

That would be like admitting defeat — it will never happen.
And then there was this gem:
@markknoller That might have something to do with his refusal to correctly classify an act of terrorism. #WorkplaceViolence @6abc
